Maybe it's just me

One of my co-workers has, as the screen saver on his computer monitors, a photo of ... himself.

Is it just me, or is that a little ... odd?  I mean, I could see if it was a photo of his girlfriend, or his kid, or even his DOG, for Pete's sake, but ... himself?

I don't know.  I only look at myself in the mirror long enough to put on my makeup in the morning.  I can't imagine staring at myself all day long.

Right now, my screen saver is a photo I took of a cloudy sky.  What's your screen saver?  Is it a photo of yourself?  Maybe this is a new thing that I'm missing out on?

Nope, it's weird. I have an image of a flower that came with my computer. I've seen people put a photo of themselves with other people on a desktop, but not just themselves alone.

Is he thinner in the photo? I could understand that if he's using it to motivate himself to lose weight.

It is odd. My screen saver is just a picture I took of some trees in the fall. But as Laura said, maybe it is a motivational picture.

Pictures of Ireland.

Maybe he's doing it so people know who he is...?

Degas. Although I have had vacation snaps and once, as I was struggling with some hard times at work, a picture of myself at the top of a mountain (beautiful reward for a long hard climb).

Maybe it's the digital form of scent-marking.

He doesn't have a weight problem, so I don't think it's that.

b, ha, scent-marking! I can believe it. God, men are weird.
